If you are curious to know... Aika is a 'love song' in Japanese, and it is pronounced 'AH-ee-ka' or if it is easier -- 'EYE-ka'. Aika is the paternal half sister to our Special K, a multiple champion fawn dam of our many time champion Black Maelstrom. She is out of Song, who has lingering fiber quality and had produced a slew of excellent dams (and an occasional herdsire) for us over the years. Song has also produced black more than once, and those dark genes have been passed on to Aika who ...

AutumnSun's Fresca, daughter of 12x champion Red Granites Mr Ben Franklin (son of Snowmass Matrix Rose and half brother to many 10x Judges Choice Red Granites Val d LSere) gathered her first place and Color Champion wins at her first show. She went on to garner judges' favor for her long staple, fineness & uniformity, and crimp uniformity throughout her many shows. From those showings, she brought home a Color or Reserve Color Champion ribbon / banner 3x! No small thing with how competitive fawn classes are nowadays.

Her 2020 cria was a fawn girl by an outside male but was a 'failure to thrive' loss, never standing on her own or trying to nurse and was lost the same day. Fresca was then bred to our multiple champion and sire of champions, Dark Secret for her 2021 cria. We thought she had not successfully grafted to this beautiful TB male she produced and in our zeal to 'save' him, we intervened to bottle feed him -- however, data from watching more patiently of her interactions with her recent girl, we realize that she is shy and doesn't like people watching her crias nurse.

Well, we are glad we gave her another try. Not only is she an excellent mom to her 2022 LF girl by our Major General, the little girl is very nice and a sweetheart to boon. Always an easy keeper, we know now that Fresca is a really "hands off" girl -- as in she doesn't want you anywhere near her or the cria after it is born. She will eye you suspiciously and refuse to nurse if she can even see you. With a little covert spying were able to witness her doting care, with her clucking and nuzzling and even making the cria get up to nurse. To soothe ourselves, we left her with a buddy and their crias in a pen to ensure close contact, but was able to let them out in only a few days, the girl going on to grow well due to a solid mothering bond.
